Learn meditation and other practices by attending the retreats we host around the world.
Our retreats welcome anyone who is interested in learning about practical spirituality, regardless of their race, gender, background, religious or political affiliations, or any other factor. Previous retreats have brought together students from countries all over the world, from every conceivable religion and belief, in an atmosphere of mutual respect and harmony.
Currently, we are preparing for two retreats in 2020:
Glorian is sponsoring a retreat for Summer 2020 in the Adirondack Mountains. For 6 days and 5 nights we will study and practice the esoteric medicine techniques taught in the books of Samael Aun Weor, especially Esoteric Medicine and Practical Magic and Igneous Rose.
Elementotherapy is the art and science of using the consciousness of plants, "elementals," to heal ourselves and others.
"Natural Magic or Elementotherapy is as ancient as the world. The Lemurians transmitted this knowledge to the Atlanteans, who transferred it to the great hierophants of ancient Egypt... The Gnostic medic must learn to utilize the Elemental Instructor (Elemental Advocate) in order to cure ill people. The Gnostic medic must learn to manipulate the elemental substances of Nature in order to cure." —Samael Aun Weor, Esoteric Medicine and Practical Magic
By blessing and commanding the elemental essence of a plant, we can resolve conflicts, reduce emnities, alleviate suffering, and even heal illnesses. Example plants include roses, aloe vera, sage, pine trees, pomegranate, apples, and millions more.
Each day will consist of group meditation and elementotherapy practices, supported by healthy meals, a few lectures, time to relax, enjoy nature, and meet other students.

While we invite anyone to attend, you must be sure you will be prepared to focus seriously on your spiritual work.
"Remember that this is not a game for children, but a work for mature individuals." —Samael Aun Weor, Esoteric Medicine and Practical Magic
Since accommodations are limited, first priority will be given to those who have not attended our retreats before.
The instructors who will lead the retreat have many years of experience teaching around the world, and have guided thousands of students from every religious and spiritual background.
The instructors do not seek or accept followers, but instead seek for each student to become self-reliant and independent, capable of guiding their own spiritual development, and increasing their ability to have conscious, awakened experiences of the truth.
In the northeastern United States, the six million acre Adirondack Mountains are one of the largest protected natural areas in North America. This retreat will be held at Garnet Hill, one of a few classic Adirondack lodges that remain today. It is located on a gentle hill overlooking a beautiful pristine lake, and has 70 miles of private hiking trails and surrounded by wild land. Recreational activities include swimming in the clear waters of Thirteenth Lake, with a beautiful beach, as well as boating, canoeing, and fishing. Garnet Hill also has an extensive mountain bike trail system.
To take full advantage of this retreat, one should already be fairly serious about gnostic study and practice. This retreat is for those who already know the essential philosophy, are practicing daily, and are ready to do more to help others. That is what elementotherapy is for: service for humanity.
If you are a beginner or otherwise not ready for a retreat like this, Glorian is organizing additional retreats suitable for beginners.
To learn more about what we are going to study and practice on the retreat, study these books:
Glorian will sponsor a weekend meditation retreat in late summer. More infomation will come soon.
"We should not mistake the Truth with opinions. Many think that the Truth is this or that, or that the Truth is within this or that book, or within this or that belief or idea, etc. Whosoever wants to experience the Truth should not mistake beliefs, ideas, opinions and theories with that which is the Truth. We must experience the Truth in a direct, practical and real manner; this is only possible in the stillness and silence of the mind, and this is achieved by means of meditation."
